A.B. 1894, which forbids the marketing of cannabis vaping devices as disposable or suggesting they may be tossed in the garbage, has been signed into law by California Governor Gavin Newsom.
Assemblywoman Luz Rivas, one of the bill's sponsors, claims that "we can no longer disregard the destructive impacts that electronics and batteries in cannabis vapes [have] on our environment and [the] trash sector." A.B. 1894 makes a significant advancement by outlawing the promotion and advertising of cannabis vaporizers that are "disposable" or may be recycled or tossed in the trash.
Battery-powered vaping devices have grown in popularity as a way to consume cannabis, but they are prohibited from being disposed of in rubbish or recycled in California because they are deemed hazardous waste.
